Loddon Valley Link

Welcome to the October edition of the Loddon Valley Link.  Our cover photo of St Leonards church at harvest time was taken by Karen West .

In the last few weeks, an issue has emerged about the demand for new housing in our area.  There is pressure from central government to build a large number of new homes in the whole Basingstoke area, and our local councillors, Borough and Parish, are putting our case forward to try and preserve the beauty of the Loddon Valley that we all enjoy.  We  have reported a summary of these developments on pages 22-23.

We are pleased to include reports and photos from the wonderful events in Sherfield on Loddon and Sherfield Park, and it is a delight to see people getting together again after the long lockdown.oct21contents

On page 21 is a message from the Diocese of Winchester about the ongoing challenges to the management of the diocese following the resignation of Bishop Tim.

On page 33, we report the latest crime figures for our area and there is a significant increase in local crime. It is even more important that we keep our homes secure, particularly sheds and garages, and be aware for recent cold-calling scams involving offers to pressure-wash for driveways and clean out guttering..

Finally, there is an interesting article from the Arts Society about Stonehenge, from a talk given by a local archaeologist. A fascinating piece about a unique structure.
